Chelsea are set to propose a massive swap deal that would involve striker Fernando Torres heading back to Atletico Madrid on loan in exchange for Diego Costa, according to Tuttosport.

The Blues are in the market for a world class striker this summer as the Spaniard and Samuel Eto’o have failed to make the kind of impact that Jose Mourinho had been hoping for.

Costa has been one of Europe’s most sought after strikers this season as his goals have kept Atletico up to speed with La Liga’s two other high flyers and now a deal could be put in place to ensure that Atletico sell with out losing out.

Torres has not had a happy spell in west London and is said to be open to making a switch back home, whilst Chelsea’s other transfer targets are believed to be wanted elsewhere.
